Alright this is a bit bizarre. I didn't notice it until tonight, so not sure if the update did it or if I just didn't notice it, but its VERY noticeable. When recording video (which I'm set on 720p) the viewfinder has numerous broken or frozen pixels of Red, Blue, and White. These pixels are also broken in the video playback. You can see these pixels when using the Camera to take pictures, but they do NOT show up in the pictures themselves as they do in the video.
I've messed with Qik a bit (even though it doesn't work on the X yet) and the videos I take while in quick do NOT show these broken or frozen pixels. The only time you can see it is when pulling up the stock camera/video camera.
As I was typing this I was uploading the video that I took to youtube. Now that it has posted, I went to watch it and there are NO stuck pixels?
Now I watch the video in the youtube app on my phone, and I CAN see the pixels while watching it there. Perhaps the compression/increase in size on my home computer just makes the pixels impossible to see. Regardless, here is the poor video:
Its taken in my dungeon of a bedroom, just a 10 second shot of my dresser for a nice dark background, but sure enough, you can't see the pixels:
Anyone else having stuck pixels when using the video camera? Any ideas how or why this is happening? Should I start pursuing a replacement?
Edit: When changing the video quality to 720, you CAN see the stuck pixels on the youtube upload. The most noticeable is a blue one in the very top left corner, and a red one in the top left quadrant as well.
One more thing: When I take the video camera out of 720, the stuck pixels no longer appear. So they only appear when in 720p, and they only stick around on videos, not on stills (despite appearing in the viewfinder during stills as well)
